A couple taken hostage by former policeman Christopher Dorner who was accused of murder, have spoken out about what happened.

Jim and Karen Reynolds found Dorner hiding in a condo they own in the small ski resort town of Big Bear Lake.

The couple said the fugitive held them at gunpoint, bound their hands and put pillow cases over their heads, before fleeing in their car.

Dorner was later cornered in another cabin by police where a fierce gunbattle took place. He is believed to have died when the property caught fire.
